Today we are negotiating with two new clients , Daikin Air Conditioners and the AA Roadside Assist for Motorbikes and we focus on how to make these very successful brands even more successful and bring them out of the closet and into the light.

We use a number of different activation products including

Promotion Pods

  • Digital Desks
  • Branded Ice Rinks
  • Specially built units

L Shape Digital Desk

The L Shape Digital Desk is a perfect fit for any Mall. As its modular it can be displayed in different directions to follow the best traffic patterns.

The Display unit is for prizes, or items of interest from clients that may use it to promote their products.  The Video is two HD screens used with a USB on which is your artwork which rotates with or without sound. Booking more than one week  in the same mall means a discount for breakdown and setup.


Our staff offering includes 2 promoters who are well trained on the technicalities of the desk as well as the mechanics of the data collection on line.

Not only do they take photos and post number of brochures distributed but they encourage people to leave their details and take videos and photos of our prize winners. They use the tablet to collect the data in a way that the client can read and analyse their market.

We do not offer sales people . Promoters only

Data Collection

Data Collection is very important when it comes to quantifying the cost of the activation. As most activations are 7 days, at least 2 of those days are very quiet.

The data we collect can be of the client’s choice of 5 questions (shoppers don’t stop longer) and generally Name, Email, Cell No as well as age, have they heard of the product, would they like more info and whats the income group they fit into. These work well together.

This data is analysed and presented after the event.

Malls/Head offices

Malls vary from city to city and South Africa and Botswana work closely together.  Costs also vary and we have three categories of Malls.

  • Category 1 – LSM 3-5 – (Example Carnival Mall)
